We are sad to announce that due to Covid-19 restrictions we have had to cancel the 2020 Sydney Peace Prize but stay tuned for news of a Gold Medal for Human Rights being awarded towards the end of 2020.
Every year, the Sydney Peace Foundation unites people from all walks of life to celebrate the awarding of the Sydney Peace Prize. For over 20 years, it has brought inspiring and exemplary stories of vision and courage to the Australian and Sydney stage, encouraging public debate and inspiring people to take action to further peace and justice in their own communities.
At the City of Sydney Peace Prize Lecture at the Sydney Town Hall, everyone has a chance to hear the recipient speak and be inspired by their leadership and dedication. The public Award Ceremony is a very special part of this event.
At the Peace Prize Dinner, guests come together to celebrate the incredible achievements of our Laureates in the struggle for peace, justice, human rights and nonviolence. This is the Foundation’s main fundraising event of the year, and it is crucial to the continuation of the Sydney Peace Prize.
The Prize is awarded to individuals or organisations whose role and responsibilities enable them to use the $50,000 award to further peace with justice. Your donation to the Sydney Peace Foundation, makes a tangible impact by helping Laureates continue their vital work for a fairer world.
